THIS IS WHO WE ARE

Philosophy

When referencing the concept of ‘dialogicality’ Mikhail Bahktin (1895 – 1975) coined the term “A Third Voice in a conversation between two”. We at Third Voice Studio believe that the process of architecture is a ‘Third Voice’ in a conversation between two - the client, or architectural brief; and the site, or space.It is our philosophy that the interconnection of these three elements; when a thorough process of analysis, collaborative work philosophies and integrity of design is explored, the soul of a place is created.

Design

As designers we believe in ‘Contextuality’. The site and its surrounds will inform the design criteria and envisage the solution. ‘Materiality’ is critical, and the belief in the honest representation of materials will enhance the space experience. ‘Space’, and its creation is as much a part of the architecture as the building itself. ‘Light’ and its manipulation and form centre the human experience in the architecture and give it soul.

Sustainability

We are Architects, Interior Designers and Construction Managers of space and landscape with a passion to find and create the sole of a place. Beyond creating a space you love and that works for you we want you to enjoy the process while getting there.
